Does anybody have any useful links/info about the next Windows OS? I know that support for the current version ends in 2029, and I want to add this on our timeline. But it would also make sense to include a mention of the successor to Windows 10.


So if you know anything, or have any predictions of your own, please post here.


I found this article that gives a few hints. Nothing really specific though:




Also, some speculation about a move into Linux:




I'm guessing Windows 11 (or whatever it's called) will be more dynamic and flexible in terms of platforms/devices and will be heavily optimised for the cloud, IoT, 5G, AI, maybe even BCI. What else might it feature?

If I remember right microsoft intended windows 10 to be the last major windows release with variations of 10 being pushed through updates as time goes on. I have no clue how long this will last but it wouldn't surprise if in 2030 the newest windows is still some variation of windows 10. It won't last forever, what comes first a name change or microsoft going bankrupt only time will tell but I'd wager will get a truly new windows before microsoft ceases to exist. 


Also, windows 10x looks like the windows 8 launch all over again. Metro was bad then and replacing the start menu and fundamental windows design motifs is still a bad idea. I'd still wager that people just want a better windows 7 that doesn't force update and violate privacy. Mobile design motifs on personal computers reduces functionality and keybordless laptops reduce functionality. No one doing major work whether word processing or code is going to want to type on glass. That's not to say that a better interface is impossible for mobile computing, but barring a brain computer interface I don't see anything surpassing the keyboard anytime soon.
